Not to be mean or harsh, but temperatures are determined by the Colorado Department of Health, not the manager. Pretty sure the proper temp is more like a maximum of 40. Thanks for trying to protect your customers, Brian. I think I might have eaten at that restaurant a couple of times ..... :-P

Didn't mean to sound dismissive, Ken. I've never seen aliens, either, but I'm sure they're out there :-) I just don't think their activities warrant killing them. (The bears, that is. I'm reserving judgment on the aliens.) We do see signs of bears in our neighborhood occasionally, but they don't hang around and they don't bring their friends. Why? Well, we may leave our doors unlocked and the keys to our cars in the ignitions ... but our trash is locked up like Fort Knox! Cresean is right; we need to enforce the existing ordinances, which were put into place one year when there was a big bear problem and it worked and the bear problem went away and then everybody got lax and ... hic nos iterum.

There were two fatal black bear attacks in the U.S. in 2014:

There were over 30 fatal dog attacks, mostly children, in 2014:

Ken, your children have a better chance of being killed by a dog, hit by a car, or struck by lightning than being attacked by a bear. I've lived in this town for 30 years and have yet to see a bear, except for pics in the paper.
